Because some times it makes sense to bind to a data source and sometimes you want to supply the contents without automatic linking between the control and the data source.

Use the suitable tool for the job.  You can put a screw into a wall with a hammer but it usually doesn't make sense to do it that way does it?

From Microsoft documentation
Use this method to bind data from a source to a server control. This method is commonly used after retrieving a dataset through a database query. Most controls perform data binding automatically, which means that you typically do not need to call this method explicitly.
